Posted on Saturday, April 20th, 2019 at 7:56 am
Two people, including a deputy officer, were sent to a hospital following a two-vehicle collision on Highway 59 near Farm to Market 1314 Road, last April 16.
At around 11:30 p.m., Porter local officers responded to major crash between a truck and a patrol vehicle. A preliminary investigation indicates that a truck was traveling along the highway when it struck the rear of a patrol car. Authorities are still determining if the officer was stopped on the freeway when the accident took place.
The impact of the collision injured both the driver of the truck and the sheriff’s deputy from Montgomery County. The extent of their injuries remains unknown at this time.
Porter Police Department has yet to determine who was at fault. An investigation is still in progress.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Porter Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties—and filing a claim can get complicated. To make sure your claim is successful, you need to gather supporting evidence and documents that can back up your claim. It could be a detailed account of the accident you are involved in or documents indicating the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video or photograph of the scene, police reports, and medical records, to name a few.
